Matt Serra: Chris Weidman Could Beat Vitor Belfort On Or Off TRT

UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman is set to face Vitor Belfort on December 6th and a big topic of discussion is whether Belfort can stay clean and healthy in the months leading up to the fight. Former UFC Welterweight champion Matt Serra, one of Weidman’s coaches, says it doesn’t matter whether or not Belfort stays clean, because Weidman will outclass him either way.

During an interview with MMA Fight Corner, Serra said:

“This is the fight that everybody wants,” Serra said. “I know it’s the fight Chris wants. Chris will fight him on or off the juice. I think Chris gets excited. At one point with the Brazil thing, he was like ‘Well you know it’s kind of exciting to fight the juiced up Vitor though because I’ll fight the best version of him’. That’s his mentality. I think no matter what Vitor you put in front of him – whether he’s juiced up, whether he’s not – I think Chris will be too much for him and I say that with all the respect in the world. But I just think he’s going to be too much for him.”

“There’s definitely more to come and more you haven’t seen and that’s what’s exciting. He’s a talented guy, he’s got a great mindset, he’s the whole package.”

Serra is confident that Weidman will hold the Middleweight Championship for a long time and he can’t wait to see the next title defense.

“He always thinks that he can do better,” he added. “I think that’s why he makes such a great champion. He’s going to hold that belt for a while. He’s got a bright future. He’s going to be the king of the middleweights for a long time to come and possibly talk super fights. Obviously, the next goal is Vitor and that’s what everybody is going to be concentrating on. We’ve got a lot of momentum on our side with everything and just I’m excited for it.”
